LWF scholarships for Ukrainian refugees in Poland
(LWI) - “This school is very different. It is not like an institution, more like a family. This school has been one of the biggest supports for us,” says Kalina Mokrya, a refugee from Ukraine and mother to three girls. Her daughters all attend the Albert-Schweitzer- School in Gliwice, Poland, a Protestant school with a Lutheran profile. LWF pays the school fees for twelve Ukrainian refugee students, who do very well at the school.
Looking at a group of students, one would not be able to tell apart the Ukrainian and Polish children. The children, who fled the war last year, take part in games and conversations in Polish like anyone else. Vladislava, called Vlada, is 15-year-old girl who seems to be known by everyone. She is Mokrya’s eldest daughter. In very good English, she talks about the school, her dreams and her plan to study law one day.
